The best (but also the most expensive) is an original Acer battery. However, you'll find many shops (especially online) that offer third-party batteries that are supposed to be compatible. Be sure you can return (and get your money back) it if it isn't.
Replacing is simple: take out the old one and put the new one in. Usually, you don't even need a screwdriver. See your user manual for details. And you won't lose anything.
By the way, having the laptop on mains power as much as possible, is the recommended procedure to give the battery the longest life.
Hi all, first post and I am not computer literate at all.
The battery icon on my Acer Aspire 5532 is showing 'consider replacing your battery' it's plugged in and fully charged at the moment. If I take the charge lead out, I get 10mins max before it shuts down because the battery has run out. I think I have made the mistake of keeping it on charge all the time.
Anyway, if I get a new battery, how do I know which one to get, and how do I replace it? Will I lose anything on my laptop? I haven't a clue so would appreciate any advice, TIA, WWAS.
